post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hiya,

Total newbie building my first system. I'm gaining a lot of great information at this site. Thanks to all, especially hosts!

Is there any place for total newbies here? Looking for advice on buildup.

Going with:
MB-EVGA 790i
CPU-E8500
RAM-Reaper 4GB DDR3
OS-Vista 64 bit
PSU-COOLMAX CUQ-1200B
CASE-Cosmos S (pros and cons I know, got it new for $160)
HDD-SAMSUNG Spinpoint F1 HD753LJ 750GB
Still working on the rest

I don't need quad now as all my apps don't utilize it so I decided to not "future proof" the CPU which is nearly impossible anyway.

Have yet to decide on GPU.

Here are my goals:

Run the following at full settings and maxed out AA- GTR2, GTL, rFactor, Race07, BF2 Forgotten Hope mod. & suitable performance on newer games which I don't own yet Crysis, Bio-whatever, etc, etc. just in case I get into them.

Cheers,

Blanchimont

p.s.
Where would I add a link to my build thread asking for advice?

Hello and welcome...

There are plenty of places here for you to get advice and information on your upcoming build...

I would suggest starting in the Intel: General Section http://www.overclock.net/intel/

You will probably want to repost most of what you just said there...as this forum is for general Hello's and Welcome's.


Once again...welcome to OCN.

Welcome to OCN

I think that your mobo, ram, + cpu setup looks pretty good. For graphics, depending how much you want to spend, for low range, look at the 8800GT (~$150); midrange, 9800GTX (~$300); or high range, GTX 280 (~$650).
